Those Dang Chips!

by Anne Paddock

Dang Chips are toasted coconut chips with a strong, sweet aroma, a very satisfying crunch, and a sweet, slightly salty taste that will make you say “Dang, that’s good.” Made of three ingredients: coconut, sugar, and salt, Dang Chips are made in Thailand where Vincent Kitirattragarn’s mother, Dang (hence, the product name) grew up.

One day while making his mother’s recipe for Thai Lettuce Wraps, Vincent found himself snacking on one of the ingredients – toasted coconut chips – and realized that sweetened and slightly salted dehydrated coconut makes for a deeply satisfying snack. So, he contacted his family who has been importing goods to the US for more than 30 years and convinced them there has to be a market for a delicious coconut snack food that shares many of the health benefits of coconut oil.

The chips also add a delicious crunch and taste to cooked oats, yogurt, cereal, and ice cream. Versatile, gluten-free, vegan, non-GMO verified and a good source of fiber and lauric acid (“good cholesterol”), Dang Toasted Coconut Chips add taste, nutrition and texture to a a variety of foods.1385350_538912806188777_1590631928_n
